E-Mail to be used for official correspondence

The Registrar’s Division has adopted email as our primary method of communication with students. Students are thus advised to check their email regularly and to advise the Student Bureau immediately should there be any change to an external email address (gmail, yahoo, etc) that may have provided at registration. Students should also guard against mail boxes becoming too full.

Hard copies of correspondence will be supplied on request to our offices.
